A lady went upon the stage suffering from
rheumatism in her arms and shoulders Her
shoulders were so stiff and lame that she had
but little use of her arms After receiving one
magnetic treatment she used her arms with

her head a thing she had not been able to do <
before in many months
Several persons suffering from deafness were

THE POLITICAL POTIh
t
There are Indications of a
Gentle Sizzle
ALLEGED LIBERAL CANDIDATES
flank Barnes Will Probably Find Ills Path
Blocked by Jim ilcTierney The General
JJipects a Walk Over
Say said a staunch young Liberal
friend of mine yesterday cant you give
us something new in tile way of political
news 3 I have patiently awaited somo an
nouncement in our own organ but so far
tbo only one I have encountered is that
signed by General Connor some time ago
in which ho peremptorily ordered all op
ponents to his race for the office of county
retorderto retire from the track
Why dont you call on your own
t organ asked
9 Because he hated to admit it i I could
see but his native honesty compelled him
towe have ceased to look to the Tribune
for anything new except in the way of
shoulder braces blazers and news of a
week or more old
Well I replied what do you know of
tho Liberal political outlook 1 You are on
tho inside I on the out I
t I I
J I understand of course said mj
staunch young Liberal friend that Genera
Connor is still on the warpath that ho
J has expressed himself on more than one
occasion that such pigmies as Colonel
Page and such infants as Frame Kim
ball must stand from under or bo eternally
obliterated If you want to see the genera
assume an attitude that might havo been
natural to to him several years ago
probably at the battle of Bear river if you
want to behold what genuine military lire
f means if you have any desire to smell
powder from afar if you have a wish to
know just how young and active tho old
veteran is just hint to him that the colonel
holds four aces in the game of County
Recorder against a solitary pair in his own
bands If this does not have the desired
effect say to him that Frank Kimball is a
very popular young man who has
hosts of friends on both sides of
the political fence who would like
to see him nominated and you
think ho would bo a hard man to beat
Youll get the dramatic effect then Youll
possibly imagine that there are
Kedbldns to the right of you
ned ldns to tho left of you
Redskins behind you
Bellowing and thundering
I am not to be quoted as authority npon
this point but I have heard it said that the
mention of the names of Page and Kim
ball within ear shot of the general has the
same effect upon him as a red rag on a bull
or as holy water on the deviL
t
And what do I think of the possible
nominees for county clerk I have only
heard the names of C E Allen and E
Kahlcr mentioned so far Between the
I two of course there is no cQmparison and
if Kahler wont stand the ghost of a show
7 with Allen as a rival
And as to the sheriff
The only available candidates at present
in the field I hear arc Hank Barnes and
James McTierney lam not so sure about
the latter either I hardly think James as
pirations reach that high but you may
rest assured that Hank will yank the bun
if it is in sight
t t I
I hear also that A L Williams is being
r importuned by his friends to allow his
name to be used as a candidate for asses
sor and that he has partially consented
If there should happen to be a Democratic
ticket In the field however Nabe would
be placed in a rather embarrassing posi
tion
J t t
So far as I have been able to ascertain
no other candidates have put In an appear
ance notwithstanding the fact that tnere
arc several pood offices that will be vacant
in August The hopes and aspirations of
the entire Liberal community seem to be
centered upon tho office of county recorder
t i
Most of the Liberal candidates I hear
arc confident that in this case at least
nomination is equivalent to election but if
there is a tenth part of the dissension in
J the Liberal ranks as I have reason to
1 believe there is i the county convention soon
to be held will be one of the most exciting
ever seen in the west and it will require
a hundred McGintys of the Salt Lake
force and half a dozen Galling guns to
keep any kind of order

The watchword the party cry of num
bers of young Liberals of my acquaintance
young men who have interests here who
have the wcllfarc of the county and city
and territory at heart is No More Yel

Hall a Century JBeliinO
It is at least fifty years too late to dispute
J the proposition that newspaper advertising
pays The reverse may have been true
when Rip Van Winkle went to sleep but
jill has waked up and even Schneider
can bark out the truth to him Xot only
does newspaper advertising but it pays
well and on the whole better than it ever
did before
A few years ago newspapers were not
what they are now They were fewer in
number and in all that characterizes good
newspaper management they IVTO inferior
to the newspapers of the present day Re
membering that our allusion is chiefly to
the papers of the smaller cities and country
towns no one who is familiar with the
facts of twentyfive years ago will dispute
with us when we say that wonder as has
been much of the progress of the last two
or three decades the advance in rwpect to
our newspapers has not been surpassed in
any other direction
In the days of the > past advertising paid
Conspicuous instances of men who grew
J rich by early perception of the advantages
r of newspaper advertising readily come to
mind while the truth that thousands of
jiersons who achieved no personal celebrity
made handsome profits by the same means I
can be easily shown
In this day the newspapers have much to
commend them which they did not then
possess They are better printed for one
thing they are more prosperous and have
o better commercial standing for another
The papers of the class specially referred to
have at their command a reading matter
service which puts them fully on a level as
to matter with the most prosperous metro
j politan daily And so an advertiser when
J 4 presenting his announcement for insertion
tnay feel confident that his adv rtisemcnt

these are also the times or perrectea print

THE FOURTH OF JULY
Chauncey M Depew Invited to
Deliver the Oration
A GRAND CHORUS PROPOSED
The Tabernacle May Be Secured for the Ora
tion Great ThreeSheet Poster In
National Colors
In addition to tho finest pyrotechnic dis
play ever given in this country the Fourth
of July programme will include many fea
tures of unusual interest I
The procuring of the Uintah Indians to
camp on the Eigth Ward square and pros
sant the fierce delights of sun anti II
war dances will alone be a novel and
unique illustration of the aborigine life
Modern civilization cannot be better
I illustrated than by securing one of the
most classic orators of the nation
famous for Jus wit as well as his
wisdom and the selection of Chauncey
I Depew is most fitting as he is the person
ification of patriotism tempered with hue
gentility
Governor Tnomas has wired a pressing
invitation and it is believed that nothing
less than a previous engagement will pro
vent its acceptance
Should Mr Depew be secured it is quite
probable that the great tabernacle would
be tendered to the committee and its fine
acoustic properties and large seating ac
ommodations would make the oration a
thing of pleasure instead or discomfort as
s usually the case when given in the
scorching sun
The advertising committee has made
arrangements for the largest poster that
can be turned out by the jobbing offices
of this city and it will be executed in red
and blue iukon white paper emblematic of
he national colors There will also be
JjOOO official programmes struck off and
distributed where they will do the most
goodA
A very important feature of the relebra
ion will be the trades pageant and though
he committee has sent out some one hun
dred and fifty invitations there has not
been as prompt a response as there should
be > There certainly ought to be no hesi
ancy on the part of any and every mer
chant manufacturer or tradesmen in preparing
paring a lit representation of the
industry he represents and plac
lug it in the pageant Surely every
enterprising citizen will go to this little inconvenience
convenience as it will not only be an ad
vertisement of his own industry and
genius but reflect the enterprise of the en
tire city
Should the tabernacle be secured the
Choral society willbe invited to participate
in the exercises which would greatly add
to the impressiveness of the occasion
Tho finance committee headed by Mr I
Arbogast are unceasing in their efforts to
raise the necessary money to meet the large I
expenses and the liberality of our citizens
in this direction is heartily appreciated
The Fourth J < of July will be celebrated in
Salt Lake on a magnitude never before ob
served in any city of tile same population

The weather has been very hot during
the last few days
Haymaking is in full blast The farmers
ire experiencing considerable difficulty in
getting help to gather their unusually large
crop of lucern
While O A Taylor and S M Wessels
were enjoying an afternoon buggy ride last
Sunday their horse became frightened and
dashed down the street toward the depot
at a lively rate Both occupants of the
vehicle were thrown out but beyond some
painful scratches and bruises neither was
seriously hurt
About 7 oclock last evening George the
elevenyearold son of William Blood was
severely injured by being kicked by a
horse Dr W F Ingram was called and
found that both bones of the right leg had
been fractured between the knee and the
ankle Ho set the bones and left the
patient as comfortable as could be expected
under the circumstances

July and August For strawberry plant
affected with insects a change of soil is i
recommended for the young plants and

the statement that English rye grass
which in great Britain is the backbone
of the hay crop has the distinction of

professor who has grown English rye I
grass for six years says No grass
spring up so quickly after sowing and i
grows so rapidly in tho early spring I
Where a lawn is to be quickly made this
grass is sown for this purpose other
lawn grasses being sown with it O

IH FARM AND GARDErT
Some Hints That Are Yalunbl
to Wideawake Farmers
A VERY HANDY FAll WAGOJ
Sensible Plans for Injlnsr Out Poultry Yards
So as to Greatly Reduce the Amount
of Fencing I
Tho nearer we approach to a square
form in fencing oft yards for poultry

portion to area of ground inclosed In
order to point out the defects of some
of the methods used Farm and Fire

inclosed in Fig 1 yet there i required
700 feet of fence I only four yards are
inclosed the fence would be 600 feet
Estimating tho space for four yards in
sbead of five each yard would contain
only 1250 square feet yet the cost of the
fence is equal to the square yards shown I
in Fig 1 though the square yards con

Diverse Experiences with Silos
In experiments made at the Missouri
station by Director Sanborn to test the
question of the superiority of food pre
served in a silo over that air dried the
the results reiiwted were unfavorable to I
the silo in several particulars I was
shown that corn fodder may be success
fully dry stored and at cheaper rates
than when stored green that a given
amount of fodder dry stored will gven
longer than the ± same amount put into
the silo and that tho dry fodder was
more cheaply handled and tho general
effects of the feeding were better than
those received from feeding ensilage
On the other hand an experiment
made with ten cows at the Michigan
station showed that the ensilage from an
acre and a half of corn although nearly
a quarter of it spoiled from a lack of care I
in filling and from exposure during the
interim of dried fodder feeding lasted
longer than tho stalks and corn and cob
meal from an equal area adjoining dry
cured and that the
cows made more i
pounds gain on it than on the dried fodder
der and meal In answer to inquiries
addressed by tho station to Michigan
farmers as to the comparative cheapness
of storage in tho silo and whether this
method was considered by them an eco
nomical and satisfactory way of preserv
ing food and one they would recommend
the < replies were uniformly favorable to I
the silo I
wile to Cut TimberC
The exact time which timber should I
bo felled for durability i one of the i
things each man can best find out for
himself The quality of timber depends
greatly on the treatment it receives af
ter felling and the uses to which it is
put I is quite generally admitted that
timber trees should not be cut when I
filled with sap and the usual custom
is t do it in the dormant season but t
whether early or late in winter is not I
well determined and most people choosa
the time withput much regard to fall or I
winter A correspondent of The Now
York World says Where the timber
is to lie exposed and unseasoned in a
long winter climate of the north I pre
fer March to December For the south
midwinter would probably be prefer
nhla lint to insure fhualnUtvfnj form

nda on the care taken in seasoning i

the h most striking of these mental per
versities is to be found in the idea that
the epidemic is to be treated by com
mon sense or by nostra which have
been largely advertised or by specifics
which are known to tho laity mainly
through their frequent mention in the
daily press Those suffering under this
delusion feel that it is wholly unnecessary
to seek skilled assistance and they boldly
dose themselves with remedies of whose
power and properties they absolutely
ignorant In Vienna according to The
Lancet it has already been found neces
sary to forbid the sale of antipyrin ex
cept under doctors prescriptions as no
less than seventeen deaths were attrib
uted to stoppage of the hearts action
owing to overdoses The freedom with
which the prescription of this remedy
has been assumed by the public has long
been viewed with anxiety by the medi
cal profession and frequent warnings
have already fallen upon deaf r

I A FARM WAGON
Convenient In Hauling Hayt Grain In tho
I Straw Manure Etc
I The running gear of tho wagon shown
in tho cut is the same as that in any
farm wagon but the coupltng pole is
longer Tho contriver of this wagonc
says of it
I got the idea of the long and wide
platform from a Pennsylvania farmer
and used it without tho hinged side
boards for several years but having
need of a wagon to haul hay to market
and bring back a load of stable manure
I I made an improvement by battening
the boards that rested on tho 3 by 8 inch
chestnut cross pieces and hinged them
to the same pieces using 14 inch strap
hinges
AfnJnt board is hinged l to and lies on
the floor when the wagon is not in use
and a tail board slips behind two cleats
nailed on the inside of the body and rests
against the hin stakes The hind wheels
being very high a little boxing was nec
essary to allow the side boards to clear
he wheels I hauling manure or any
kind of short stuff the side boards aro
turned up perpendicularly and hooked
to the front and tail boards if the load
is of a spreading character two pieces
of chain are hooked to the top of the
side boards over the two middle cross
pieces Tho lower part of the body is
made of two 2 by 12 inch white pine
boards 16 feet long
The four cross pieces are seven fEet
long but could be made a foot longer if i
desirable and are fastened to the side
pieces by six inch bolts I putting in
these bolts I bored one inch and a hal
holes in tho side pieces two inches from
the top tho bolts going through cross
pieces enter these holes and the nuts are

turned up tight with a cold chisel and
hammer I did this to avoid the use of
such long bolts as would have been nec
essary to go clear through the twelve
inch side pieces These side pieces are
cut into below to allow the front wheels
to run under the body this made it nec
essary correspondingly to raise the floor
in front The same pieces are cut run
ner shape at the front ends for tho samo
reason this lets tho body come that

Saving 1onltry Manure
Much loss of the fertilizing properties
of poultry manure will be caused by
sprinkling ashes over the floor of your
hen house as an absorbent and barrel
ling up the droppings thus mixed
Wood ashes more than that of
coal liberate the ammonia with which
this land of manure is highly charged
and which it should bo ones object to
prevent escaping Good dry loam or
road dust which i the best of all
should be used for this purpose instead
of ashes This will save all the valuable
constituents and if enough is used will
put the droppings into the best condition
for spreading upon the ground I poul
try manure is to b mixed with ashes at
all it should not be done until it is want

with the soil there will be no le

lime has proven effectual and lime has
the merit of being easily procured and is

time tho most popular remedy against
cabbage insects is pyrethrum insect pow

latter when practiable and buy only that
which comes in tin boxes This powder

A HAt AND GRAIN RACK
Recommended as Being More Convenient
Than the Usual Form
A correspondent of Ohio Farmer who
thinks that a marked defect in hay and
grain racks is that of being too wide in
front gives h own plan for a styleof
rack gves he thinks will prove satisfac
tory

BAY AND GRAIN RACE
Fig 1 represents this rack The side
boards of frame A A are 2JxC inches
15 feet long Good yellow pine if it is
clear of knots i good for these and will
make the rack light but if you cannot
jet first class pine better uso oak To
cross pieces B are oak 3x3 inches
board C C are JxS inches and should
be used a soon a sawed in order to bend
easily The upright ladder D is se
cured at the bottom in a roller E and
the roller should b placed back of front
piece B far enough for ladder to lean
slightly forward at top when raised up
This ladder i very useful in tying lines i
up when loading and also in booming
on a load of hay or grain and can b
easily folded back on rack when the
rack is stored away
It will bo seen by the engraving that
the rack is narrower in front It i
made this way to be convenient in turning
ing the wagon In making a rack it re
quires a bolster F made especially for
tho purpose and bolted firmly to the rack
by a double bolt a shown in Fig 2
Also the cross pieces are fastened with I
the samo kind of fastening This main
frame or bed is 2 feet wide at front
end and 3 feet where it rests on rear I
bolster of wagon I can be made any
desired width in front but 2 feet i nar
row enough for convenience
TVlien ShonlVl tho Cow Come In Milk
In answer to the question at what sea
son i it the most profitable to have a
cow in her largest flow of milk it may
he said that it will depend entirely upon
circumstances I cheese making i tho
object the cows should be fresh in the
I spring but there will ba a sensible fall
ing off in the milk beginning on tho
failure of the autumn pastures with a
continual decrease through the winter
and a final drying up in the early spring
The result is a comparative scarcity of
milk through the winter months O
the contrary if the calf is dropped in
early winter the cow will be fresh when
milk is usually scarcest and at a period
when a higher price can be obtained if
sold to families a milk or if used for
butter making As tho May and Juno
pastures will send tho milk of such cows
up again in nearly a full yield along
with there that have yeld in the
spring the advantage in many cases
I would seem to be on the side of tho cow
that gives the most milk in winter

The agricultural editor of The Now

following concern
ing wood ashes It is common to con
sider leached ashes of little or no value
as a fertilizer from tho fact that tho
potash has been abstracted and therefore
its use at the best can only bo for its
mechanical effect on stiff and hard soils
and thus many persons neglect to haul
it out on cultivated lads at all
While it is true that nearly all the pot
ash has been taken out the lime ad

ashes contain more lime than potash it
often occurs that leached ashes win on I
certain soils produce highly beneficial
effects almost a marked a thoso of un
leached ashes on another field This 1
arises from the fact that tho soil of the 1
field on which it was used already
contained sufficient potash but was de
